Dorflinde, linden tree planted at a central location in a village (close to the chapel), sometimes on a special occasion; in some villages very old (e.g. in Dienten am Hochkoenig, planted 1506); tradition rarely upheld in the 20th century. In the Middle Ages the village court, which dealt with matters of self-government in the village, was held under the village linden tree. The village linden tree has played an important role in festivities and in everyday life up to modern times.
